Detect Vermilion, Ohio
If the excitement of the Woollybear Festival isn’t enough then while you’re in Vermilion be sure to stroll around town and visit it’s quaint shops and stores suggesting everything from home-made chocolates to candles. There’s even an old fashioned soda fountain in downtown Vermilion. One of the major attractions of the town is the Inland Seas Maritime Museum. Founded to preserve and interpret the maritime history of the Fine Lakes you can stand at the helm of a real lake ore freighter, see artifacts from famed shipwrecks in the lakes, and surround yourself with the history of everything from the Battle of Lake Erie to the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Another unique feature of Vermilion is “The Lagoons” a prestigious residential area across the sea from downtown. To get a water-level view of the town and the lagoons The Mystic Belle, a little sternwheeler cruise boat, will be operating during the Woollybear Festival taking visitors on rails up and down the Vermilion Sea.
